My Family Connections Journey:
I'm still on the journey searching for Family Connections.
I've been working on The Elias W. Bartlett Sr. Family Connections.
Little is known about Elias W. Bartlett Sr. He was most likely to have been born into slavery about 1822 in Kentucky. He lived to see freedom. He was a farmer by trade. He was listed on the 1870 and 1880 censuses in Carroll County in Missouri. He was married at least twice.
Elias Bartlett's first marriage was most likely during slavery. He was married to Rachel Bartlett, perhaps in the early 1850's or earlier. According to the 1870, Elias was listed with Rachel and children: Warren, John, Fanny, Lena, and Harriet. We can assume that they were a family. Children born from 1852 to 1865. No other record of these children were found on the 1880 census.
I believe that there could have been more children born between 1852 - 1865. Not for sure if Rachel was the mother of all the children. Elias was believed to have been the father of about 14.
According to the 1880 Elias was married to Harriett. Elias' children were listed as Sally, Charles and Lucy Elias W. Jr, and William. ~ Only Elias Jr. was Harriett's child. The others appeared to have had a different mother. (Not for sure if William was Warren from the 1870.) Children born from 1854 to 1879. Sally Charles and Lucy may have had a different mother. They were listed as mulatto in other records on them.
Elias Bartlett Sr. may have passed away sometime in the mid 1890's. He was not listed on the 1900 census. His widow, Harriet was listed on the 1900 census in St. Joseph, MO with children Lucy, Elias Jr., Sam, Jennie , Paul and Juanita . Harriett was listed as having 7 children, only 6 were living.
Other findings: Thoughts
On the 1900 census, Harriett was listed with a granddaughter, Myrtle Peyton.
Myrtle could have been the daughter of her daughter that passed.
I believe that Elias W. Bartlett Sr. could have had other children born from 1875 -1893. Elias and Harriet married about 1875. Not for sure when Rachel passed away. There was a 10 year gap between Lucy born about 1869 and Elias Jr. born about 1879.
I'm finding it interesting to go back over what I discovered.
There were some things I missed.
I believe that there are a lot of relatives on the Bartlett Connections.
Did you see any connections?
